Also, a while back I discovered this link via google.  
It is a government link.  It makes reference to the location of “Moyle House”.  
 The site doesn’t seem to know the significance of Moyle House.  I checked and 
it is within Moyle Glebe, and it fits the description of where Sir Thomas 
Maclear was born.  

I believe it might have been where the Rev James Thomas Maclear (his father) 
lived.  Here are some of the references to Moyle Cottage:
It is where Sir Thomas Maclear (the Rev’s son) saw his first light.  Was born.
It is where Sir Thomas Maclear’s mother, Mary McGrath, died.

Anyway, just a bit of trivia.  

When we go to Newtownstewart in June I will check it out.  (promise not to 

Oh by the way, the significance to me is that my 3rd Great Grandmother, Martha 
(Maclear) Chambers was a daughter of the Rev James Thomas Maclear.

Meanwhile, I have the location of St Eugene’s Graveyard.
